Leah has been enjoying her sensory table Daddy built for her. We played with purple sand the first day. She drove a little tractor through the sand and made little tracks. She also played with farm animals and said they were eating the purple food. She played with the table and sand for more than 2 hours. She was very vocal about what she was doing and what the animals were eating. The next day I had an entire new project for her, but she insisted on doing sand again. She played with yellow sand and it was another 2-3 hour long project. She was much more quiet the 2nd day, and just explored it by herself. I even tried getting into it with her, and she didn't seem to want my help, so I just sat back and watched her.
Casandra and I have been talking about doing "clean clouds" so we decided today was the day. The girls didn't quite know what to do with it at first, but they quickly got their hands all soapy. They loved scooping and dumping their clouds into bowls. I have to admit.. Brayden ate a couple clouds. I think he liked them. Casandra made a little cloud "cake", and the first thing Leah said was, "Birthday candles, Mommy!". Normally, I would laugh it off, and distract her with something else. But, why not?? We got out a candle and they spent a good 20 minutes or so blowing it out over and over again. They had so much fun, and now my entire house smells like cheap soap, but it was totally worth it.
Enjoy the pictures.
Yes, you may play in the dog water and get wet and dirty.
